Saudi intercepts ballistic missile near Yemen border: State media

Saudi Arabia's air force intercepted on Friday a ballistic missile fired by Yemen's Iran-allied rebels towards the southern region of Najran, Saudi-owned broadcaster Al Arabiya reported.

Maliki said the attack "deliberately targeted densely populated civilian areas" and had caused minor damage to the property of a Saudi citizen.

Ibb and Al-Hodeidah governorates are the hardest hit by diphtheria, spread through close physical and respiratory contact, World Health Organization spokesman Tarik Jasarevic said in response to a query. Saudi authorities, for their part, claim to have intercepted the missile.

The spokesperson described the attack as "hostile" and accused Iran of supporting Houthi militias.

"These (missile launch) are aimed at threatening the security of not only Saudi Arabia but also the region and the world as firing of ballistic missiles targeting densely populated cities and villages is contrary to global humanitarian law", he said in Riyadh. He also underlined the need to hold Iran accountable for its support and flagrant defiance of global norms and values.

In December, Saudi Arabia said it had intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthis towards the royal palace in the capital Riyadh.

Earlier on Thursday, the United Nations said coalition airstrikes killed 109 civilians over the past 10 days, including 68 in one day in separate airstrikes.

Houthi spokesmen frequently announce the launch of "ballistic missiles" at military and civilian targets inside Saudi territory.

Footage shows the missile hurtling through the sky in the Middle East.
